LAPD (Luciferase Assisted Proteome Detection) Platform for Plant Systems Biology
Beyond the research, I learned so much about the world and myself through the program. I'd like to thank everyone who made China a place that I'll miss for many years to come. Hopefully not too many...
-Benjamin Lee, '14
Growth and Development in Children with Picky Eating Behavior: a cross-sectional study
It helped me develop research skills and see from a global perspective. It gave me the opportunity to travel abroad for the first time and meet and work with so many great people.
-Eva Lee, '13
Characterization of Alpha Ganglion Cell Distribution in the Cat Retina using RNA-Binding Protein with Multiple Splicing Antibody
Everything was great! I loved my lab… Overall I learned so much about Chinese history and culture that I couldn't have learned by watching TV or reading a book.
-Jessica Liu, '14
HUA ENHANCER2 is Important for the Growth and Development of Arabidopsis Independent of Post-transcriptional Gene Silencing
I made Chinese friends, met great mentor, traveled to amazing historical sites, and learned about Chinese culture.
-Joonhee Kim, '14
The Prevalence and Risk Factors of Depression among the Elderly in Beijing - Based on a 2010 Survey
I gained a whole new perspective of Computer Science, and learned a lot about my topic. It was also a very interesting experience working in a Chinese lab. Not only have I made amazing friends, I also met future collaborators.
-Karen Chaw, '14
How can Representation Learning Deal with the Problem of Nuisance Variability in Computer Vision?
I'm happy for my choice to work here this summer. I improved the results of my UCLA PhD project and worked in 2 new projects as well. It seems my research in PKU will lead to at least one publication.
-Nikolaos Karianakis, PhD candidate
Potential Role of MG53 in Aging
One of the most important themes I discovered was the value of collaborating, especially with people from different backgrounds.
-Scarlett Chen, '15
Effects of Glutamate and Substance P on DREAM and Prodynorphin Expression Levels in Astrocytes and Neurons
-Taryn McLaughlin, '13
The Oxidative Stress Biomarkers in Normal and TMD Patients
-Vivian Tran, '13
Characterization of DREAM in Astrocytes and Neurons in Response to Pain Modulators, Bradykinin and Glutamate
I love this program! I did a lot that I've never experienced before... I really gained a lot from it --- friendship, cultural experience and academic enrichment.
-Wai Yin Michelle Wong, '14
Accelerating the Reservoir Simulator using Circuit Simulation Techniques
We learn a lot from each other on the way of thinking and dealing with problems. So I think the most important knowledge I gained is how to collaborate and discover common research interests with people in different research area.
-Wei Wu, PhD candidate
Kinematic and Dynamic Simulation of Interceptive Behaviors
-Xiaolong Jiang, PhD candidate
